Awesome / Full House

Go To

  • In "The Hole In The Wall Gang", D.J. and Stephanie's antics end with a hole punched through Danny's bedroom wall. They steal spackle from Jesse and Joey to fix it, but end up with a lumpy patch job. So the girls move all of Danny's furniture a few inches to the right to cover the patch, and lie to Danny's face when he gets home. And they don't ever get caught. For this show, that alone is EPIC.
    • Danny comes to tell them he realized something is off... someone moved the baking soda in his drawer.
  • Danny tells a boxer how his wife left him when he was training, causing him to lose the fight. The manager blames Danny and belts him in the gut...and screams in agony. Danny opens his jacket to show the man smashed his fist on the giant belt buckle Stephanie gave him as a gift.
  • Joey gets one when he does something that has seldom happened on the show...actually disciplining Michelle in a class where he was a substitute teacher.
    • Also, when Michelle gets home from school and Danny hears about what happened, he sends Michelle to her room. Coming from someone who usually lets Michelle off scot-free, that is pretty awesome.
  • In "Michelle Rides Again, part 1", Danny tells off the snobby mother of Michelle's friend. Doubles as a Funny Moment.
    "Well, not this year, because Michelle Tanner is gonna kick your butt."
    • D.J. and Steve get back together at the end of part 2, soon after Michelle got her memory back.
  • In a flashback to when Danny and Joey meet in fifth grade, Danny is getting bullied when Joey steps in to defend him. Seeing Joey stick his neck out for a kid he didn't even know was pretty awesome. Danny helps him back when the bully tries to get Joey in trouble.
  • When Teddy and Denise are fighting over who is Michelle's best friend, they start trying to bribe her by offering to give her their possessions. Of course, Michelle eagerly takes advantage of it which results in Denise getting mad.
    Denise: All I have left is my Princess Jasmine pencil case.
    Michelle: That'll go great with my Abu eraser!
    Denise: Who said you could have it?
    Michelle: But don't you want to be my best friend?
    Denise: Not if you take all my stuff. If Teddy wants to give you all his stuff, Good. For. Him.
    • It was so great (and rare) to see somebody call Michelle out of her brattiness.
  • "Stephanie's Wild Ride" from Season 8 centered on Stephanie and Gia pretending to be 16 and getting into a car with two high school guys they didn't know and who drove dangerously. D.J. gets an awesome moment because she refuses to let Stephanie go out when Gia and the guys show up again later that night, and talks her through the fact that as you get older, you're more able to tell yourself when something is dangerous. The sisterly bonding doubles as a Heartwarming Moment later on, when Danny tells both girls that Gia was injured in a car accident that evening.

  • Danny any time he busts his daughters for doing something they shouldn't and effortlessly disciplines them, rarely even needing to raise his voice.
  • Becky facing her fear of heights in "Leap of Faith" to go bungee-jumping is pretty darn awesome.
  • Kimmy doing something smart in "We Got The Beat" by buying Joey's and Danny's stocks in a toy company at its all time low. So when the stock went up massively she made a huge profit.
  • Becky's make up advice; specifically: "The point of make up is to make it look like you're not wearing any."
  • Jesse gets one in 'Silence Is Not Golden' when, upon being informed by Stephanie of her classmate's abusive father, he immediately rushes to report it to the police. That, and how clearly enraged he is for a kid he doesn't even know.
    Jesse: I gotta report this right now.
    Stephanie: Why?
    Jesse: Because if I don't, I'm going to go straighten him out myself.

  • In "Shape Up", DJ goes on a very clearly dangerous diet and makes Stephanie promise not to tell the family about it. Then DJ collapses in the middle of a work out. Stephanie can't keep the secret any longer.
    DJ: Stephanie, you promised you wouldn't tell!
    Stephanie: I don't care! I'm not gonna let you get sick!
  • "Crimes and Michelle's demeanors" Danny attempts to once again blame the girls for something Michelle did, that being inflating Michelle's swimming pool in the kitchen. DJ and Stephanie have finally had enough of being blamed for Michelle's trouble making and stand up for themselves, saying it's all Michelle's fault and that Danny lets her do whatever she wants. Danny tries to deny this but when he hear Michelle's bratty confirmation, he realizes the girls are right and knows he has to punish Michelle. It's awesome to see the girls actually get through to Danny on how much he lets Michelle get away with.


How well does it match the trope?
